. this was history. it was defining. let's remember the grand irony is if president obama as a state senator doesn't get up and go on the record opposing the war on iraq, it's hard to imagine he wins that primary. that was the key to the fact that he then became president of the united states. >> with consensus of opinion in hyde park at that moment. >> exactly. what you would do as a state senator from hyde park and i think he believed it. >> you had the conservatives, the realists who intellectually were saying this is the wrong war. it was on the one hand a safe position, but also once it became nationalized rather than just this moment, it was brave. >> that is good. the end of the war in iraq, the start treaty is like an a-15 type thing on the newspaper. it's incredibly important. nuclear weapons are massively destructive, dangerous things. we have way more than we need, ever, as does russia. over quite a bit of opposition extending political capital. >> and crumbling infrastructure. >> it's a big accomplishment. the record on afghanistan, you know, he ran on adding more troops to afghanistan

, dashing with a remote hopes remain for two-state solution. the obama administration has refused to cut aid or even offer criticism, limiting its reaction to calling the expansion "counterproductive." new details have been revealed on the obama administration's weapon sales to bahrain after -- during the ruling monarchy's ongoing crackdown on opposition protesters. the website propublica reports the u.s. has sold weaponry including ammunition, combat vehicle parts, communications equipment, blackhawk helicopters, and an undisclosed missile system to bahrain since the protests began nearly two years ago. it is unclear if all the purchases were delivered, but they provide a key window into the extent of u.s. support for the bahrain government -- regime as it faced international condemnation for repressing dissent. all the weapons are supposed to only be used for self-defense, some may have been used against civilian demonstrators. iran helicopters reportedly fired on protesters in march 2011, around the same time bahrain that helicopter related acquisition from the united states. a group of l
, president obama stated that we cannot continue to cut our way to prosperity. well, mr. president, on the contrary. we cannot tax and spend our way to prosperity either. i think tonight we're starting what i hope will become a regular occurrence. as we look at it, it's what i believe we have to do. and i believe it's about telling our story. and telling why conservative principles mat around how conservative principles, when we explain how we can get debt off their backs, spending under control, then it's freedom for their kids to have a better future. so they can go to college, so they can buy that or start that new business, to employ other people. i believe america's greatest gift was found in the free -- founding the free enterprise system and that's what we can encourage by getting our own fiscal house in order here tonight. this is a time for us to come together. and i'm pleased to stand with you and the other freshmen here tonight and as we continue to discuss just that we're here to work. we're here to make some hard choices. and realize it's all in america's best interest
: you talked about how obama managed to drive a wedge between red state republicans and blue state republicans. is that what he's trying to do on the debt ceiling debate as well. >> you can the white house adopt a divide and conquer strategy for quite a bit of time. there are 85 house republicans who voted yes on the bill and created the margin it needed to pass. here's the interesting thing of those 85 republicans who voted yes. 70 of them came from blue states. states that voted for barack obama over mitt romney last november. in other words the white house is defending on some of these blue-state republicans. that means if the white house can drive a wedge between the blue state republicans and the red state presence he might be able to get dicey piece of legislation through the house. >> john: it seems to be a strategy. where does the debt ceiling fit into this? it just ensures that we pay the bills that we already spent. why are they talking about the two issues as if they're the same? >> why do they do a lot of things. but the question as that vote approaches in february or m

court. a third is obama care where the states refuse to follow the federal policy and sued for the right to do that and won a mixed holding from the supreme court. in the midst of all this, you have a supreme court which is itself very much -- everybody come on up. there are some seats in the front. don't be shy. the supreme court is very much influx. that area is unsettled in a way that it has not been for a very long time. and in the midst of all of that, talk about putting a cat among pigeons, legalize marijuana. and this is more than any of the previous policies, a direct confrontation with federal policy. they did it, moreover by referendum. lopsided votes to the public. now a parameter for our discussion is i think it's going to say that none of our comments are rehearsed. but i think we're all probably going to agree that federal policies as a matter of law is supreme here. i don't think that's in question. what is in question is what is wise for the federal government to do in this situation and what is wise for the states to do because more of them will be considering marijuana
states, and i think that has got to be something the obama operation addresses. he's doing this free of ever having to run for office again, so i think we'll have a very different tone and tenure and different approach in the second term since he's not worried about re-election. >> when presidents don't have re-election hanging over them, how does it affect how they govern? >> generally speaking they turn their attention to foreign policy because they want to suddenly build a legacy as world leaders. we haven't been talking about. i don't know if he will be talking about it tomorrow. i don't know if he has a foreign policy agenda. i think his coalition does. human rights is right at the top of the agenda for america, women's rights and gay rights. >> really. >> a lot of countries oppress and even kill gay people. that's going to be a principle. >> those are some of the issues actually that this hasn't gotten a lot of attention that secretary of state hillary rodham clinton has been addressing during her ten tour at the state department. it will be interesting if it comes out of there
hague for those of you who don't know me. i was appointed by president obama a little more than two years ago to be united states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communitie
to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-year mandatory federal prison term for anyone convicted of any gun crime in the windy city or anywhere else in america. rob a seven blefn a gun. 10 years in the federal pen. illegally possess a gun, staple deal. 10 years. that's how you keep guns off the street. don't believe me? take a look how drastically the crime rate has fallen in the u.s.a. over the past decade. nationwide, violent crime down 23%. why? because of strict mandatory prison terms for chronic criminals. if you read the late james wilson, the nat

that reads that the validity of the public debt of the united states should not be questioned. they say, based on that, they would support president obama, in raising the debt ceiling without congressional approval. joining me now to talk about that and many other thicks, former mississippi governor, republican, haley barbour. thank you for coming in. >> i hope the president doesn't try to do that. to try to take away from the congress the power that the constitution directly gives the congress. that is the power to -- to spend, the power to control the debt. i know that the treasury department has announced they are not going to do it. i hope they stick to that decision because this is -- we should never have a situation where one person-- the president -- can put our country deeper, deeper, deeper in debt. we are doing a bad job of that now. it would be really bad if it was not -- if the congress let their control go. >> shannon: you saw the white house press secretary says it is not something we are going to do or are prepared to do. but we have a all right from dozens of democrats i
